Jaka Andrej Vojevec: THEATRE OF HUMAN KIND: PLASTOCENE – tour
Have you ever wondered how to name the final human age in the event of human extinction? Let’s try to follow the analogy of the names of historical epochs, which highlight the most important material used by man to make tools and other objects … Jaka Andrej Vojevec, Slovene author and director of socially engaged theatre, a known figure in public space theatre and a close associate of non institutional stages, offers an answer: PLASTOCENE (material: plastics). Theatre of Human kind is an amusing museum experience of archaeological finds of a foreign civilization upon human extinction, which can be seen by a viewer alone or in a group guided tour. In both cases, they receive a map of the exhibition, a helmet and the essential gadget, 3D glasses. When we put on our own pair, we find out that only then we can really see. We encounter the knowledge acquired of us – the plastic dwellers – by the foreign civilization, especially about competitiveness and the concept of competition, about the unbridled accumulation in the name of religion, about the indifference towards the environment and other species. Theatre of Human kind is an immersive visualisation of the present, and its presence provides the opportunity for the general public to meet this fascinating species and recognize in it themselves – the Slovene plastic dwellers.
Guided tours are in Slovene and English.
